EELS have recently unveiled another exceptional new track ‘Today Is The Day’, taken from the highly-anticipated new album The Deconstruction.
The album is out April 6th on E Works/[PIAS] and to be released digitally, on CD, 2 x 10” LP, and on Limited Edition Deluxe 2 x 12” LP Box Set.
Serving as a second glimpse into the new album, ‘Today Is The Day’ offers a buoyant, sanguine perspective, built from a positive, upbeat foundation. When asked to comment, EELS singer Mark Oliver Everett aka E, simply says, “Today is the day I finally eat that fucking donut.”
Recorded at The Compound, Los Feliz, and The Pie, Pasadena, California, the new album was performed by E, Koool G Murder and P-Boo, with The Deconstruction Orchestra & Choir and produced by frontman, E, as well as Mickey Petralia (marking his first time in an EELS production chair since the band’s second album Electro-Shock Blues in 1998).
E says of the new album;
Here are 15 new EELS tracks that may or may not inspire, rock, or not rock you. The world is going nuts. But if you look for it, there is still great beauty to be found. Sometimes you don’t even have to look for it. Other times you have to try to make it yourself. And then there are times you have to tear something apart to find something beautiful inside.
As well as releasing new music, the band are set to embark on a string of UK headline shows in July, which includes London’s O2 Brixton Academy.
